We all have an ego. We can be hurt by what people say about us, we can be selfish, we want to look good to others, and we lie to avoid trouble. We say that some people have a "big ego."
What is this ego? Though most people take it for granted, it seems a bit like a limitation.
Actually, not everyone does have an ego. Those few who are "enlightened" are supposed to not have one.
